(By Briana Hunt) Inequality is a recurring theme in the writings of Plato, Rousseau, Marx, and Wollonstonecraft. Each of these texts provide a different point of view on the world in each of their respective time periods. In Plato, we are given a Socratic dialogue between men dissecting the meaning of injustice, and if justice is attainable by all. Marx focuses on government and if they are providing the protection for their people or it is just facade to perpetuate inequality to serve the elite. Rousseau examines the primal elements of inequality, and Wollonstonecraft centers on women’s role in society. These works are meant to provoke thought, and have remained relevant centuries later.
